BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — The signup period for Louisiana’s congressional elections is starting.

Many of the major candidates for U.S. Senate are expected to be among the first in line Wednesday morning at the Secretary of State’s Office to qualify for their race.

Candidates for the Nov. 8 election have until Friday to register their candidacies.

Besides the presidential race, Louisiana will be choosing someone to fill a Senate seat that is open because Republican David Vitter isn’t running for re-election. At least 11 contenders have indicated they intend to run.

All six of Louisiana’s U.S. House seats also will be on the ballot.

Because two congressmen, Republicans Charles Boustany and John Fleming, are leaving their House seats to run for Senate, a long list of candidates are expected to qualify in those races.
